Tonight: Seattle Bike Master Plan update and last chance to vote

Today is the last day to vote in the Club election, and tonight is the Annual Membership Meeting with a special presentation on the Seattle Bike Master Plan.


Meet the four candidates put forth by the nominations committee to run for Board of Directors:

Each Club member may vote for up to two candidates. Two proposed bylaws revisions are also up for your consideration.

How to vote: Paper ballots can dropped at the office by 5 p.m. today, returned by mail with a postmark of Oct. 9, or submitted at tonight’s Annual Membership Meeting.

Current members in good standing should have received an email with a link to their e-ballot. Look for an email message dated Friday, Oct. 5 from Chuck Ayers with  a subject line “Less than a week to vote!”

Please don't try to vote more than once, because that will invalidate your ballot. If you have any difficulties at all, please contact us at (206) 522-3222 or at via email.
